One of the hornbill residents of the World of Birds. Many of the birds in this wildlife sanctuary are injured and come here to rehabilitate.
This bird ran over to us at the fence and pecked my camera lens, hard. Too funny, but thankfully was not an eye.
The colors and canal and lovers of Burano, Italy. OK- huggers, but I thought it made for a good shot.
Burano Bicycle. A photo I took last spring when we were staying in Venice on the European part of our trip around the world. Someone recommended we make the water bus ride out to [...]
The tide’s out in the Lower Town, Fishguard harbor. At low tide, the boats rest on the sand, floating again as the tide rises.
The trail sign for the hike to Dinas Head, just east of Fishguard. The headland is almost an island, attached to the mainland by a narrow bit of land.
In Brussels, a constant crowd gathers in front of the small fountain statue called Manneken Pis, of a little boy peeing.
We came here not knowing much about Brussels or even Belgium. The land of chocolate, thriving, modern, historic; my vague thoughts. Not many of my friends have come home with stories, my open questions [...]
As I was going through my photos from walking about Paris today, I was most taken with the gargoyles of Notre Dame de Paris. Gotta love ‘em!
We loved this view of the flying buttresses of the Cathedral Saint-Louis de Blois from the area in front of the castle. We’ve loved the history and castles here in the Loire Valley, although I have fallen a little behind in the blog here, as I’ve been under the weather.
Standing on top of the world. We drove up to Port de Cabus and looked over the edge into Spain.
Looking down into Andorra from Port de Cabus. If you look carefully, there is a little band of horses in the bottom left of the photo, mares and babies.
At the viewpoint for Alt [...]
It was a beautiful day when we made the drive to Pisa this week. I love the contrast of the blues and greens of sky and grass with the grey and white of the buildings. This is the Duomo, the cathedral on the Campo with the famous leaning tower.
The Camposanto in Pisa. We [...]
Wall art in the tunnel of love- Via dell’Amore, near Riomaggiore, Italy, one of the Cinque Terre.
Lovers bring locks to tie their love in the Via dell’Amore. They hang from every fence and gate.
Riomaggiore is one of the five lands of the Cinque Terre National Park in Italy. It is famous [...]
The medieval city walls of Dubrovnik, Croatia
We walked the walls of Dubrovnik, following the flow of tourist making the way counter-clockwise around fortress walls encircling the old city in a complete circle. The sun in the clear blue sky illuminated the water and shone orange and red off the rooftops. I shot hundreds of [...]
France, we explored the Rhone river area from where it flows out of Lac Leman past promenades and waterfront shopping and cafes through valleys sprinkled with small villages of stone houses and vineyards between them. And further downstream to the confluence with the Saone in Lyon. In Lyon, we spent several nights, [...]
A new blog. We are making a new start in so many other ways, it is also time for me to make a new blog to go with our new adventures. Having sold Rock Springs Guest Ranch last fall, we began dreaming about what we would most like to do with our lives. We decided [...]
